This Week on HearSay
April 24-27, 2006

Monday, April 24

We're just a week away from local election day.  Are you planning to cast your vote?  As candidates hit the pavement to attract voters, we'll take a look at the ups and downs of running for political office with our guests, Former US Congressman William Whitehurst, Sean O'Brien, Executive Director of the Sorensen Institute, and Political Strategist Lisa Turner.  Cathy also talks with Delegate Leo Wardrup and Virginian Pilot Reporter Warren Fiske about all the latest happenings from the floor of the General Assembly's Special Session.

Tuesday, April 25
Today on HearSay - a rare opportunity to hear the voices of poets past and present, from Walt Whitman and William Butler Yeats to Amiri Baraka and Sylvia Plath.  We talk with Rebekah Presson Moseby, editor and producer of the CD compilation Poetry On Record: 98 Poets Read Their Work (1888-2006) and Michael Khandelwal, creative writing instructor at The Muse, a writing studio and workshop, about the magic of hearing these beloved poets and what it reveals about their work.

Wednesday, April 26
People with mental illnesses and their families often fight not only the stigma attached to mental illness, but also the net of the criminal justice system or the bureaucratic maze of community resources.  Today on HearSay, we consider a national model for law enforcement in the treatment and handling of the mentally ill.  We take a look at the resources available here in Hampton Roads.  And we speak with the author of Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness, who chronicled his findings and experiences with his bipolar son. 

Thursday, April 27
Gang activity is becoming increasingly visible throughout Hampton Roads.  On the Peninsula, city administrators are implementing some innovative programs to make sure the problem doesn't escalate.  Today, we bring you a special broadcast from a Newport News town hall meeting where citizens came together to hear from law enforcement and city leaders about the extent of the problem and to learn about a program in Hampton that's making a difference.
